Approximately 30,000 Tibetans reside in foreign countries other than India, Nepal, and Bhutan. We are all aware of the trend of many Tibetans migrating to affluent countries such as the United States and European countries, and it is not far-fetched to assume that half of the Tibetan population in exile will be residing outside of India, Nepal, and Bhutan within the next couple of decades. One of the major concerns is how we ensure that our younger generation, born or brought up in the US and other foreign countries are able to read, write and speak our Tibetan language. Keeping this in mind, the Tibetan Association of Colorado supports our Tibetan Cultural School by developing, sustaining, and growing our various learning programs. We are fortunate to have so many of our community members that play an important role by volunteering their precious weekends and teaching language classes, music instruments, traditional dance, and songs to our children. With the support and guidance of the Tibetan Association of Colorado, the school’s operation is overseen by the Teacher Association and is headed by its Principal Dicky Dolkar la, and Vice Principal Dorjee Bhuti la. Currently, 72 children, ages 5 to 18 years old, are attending the school. Every year, the number of students attending TCS increases, which is why we are always in need of more teachers for language, musical instruments, traditional dance, and song. You can make a difference and contribute in your own way towards our common goal of preserving our Tibetan culture and language.
